No, I've only had one all along, although perhaps it was misunderstood. 
  That is, that there are many people using CentOS in roles where being

world experience and know that plans don't always work out, but having 
some idea of what to expect is better than none.

No one questions your effort on the technical side - or has a right to. 
  Why is it so hard to share what is going on?
